Marc Jacobs To Add Plus Sizes to His Label

Marc Jacobs to Add Plus Sizes to His Label?

Marc Jacobs CEO Robert Duffy recently took to his company Twitter account to announce the possibility of adding a size 18 to the label — the largest size right now is a 16. "I'm a big guy 6'4" 210 lbs. [It's] not easy for me to find clothes. Of course I can have them made. I know how everyone feels. I try to diet but . . . We gotta do larger sizes . . . As soon as I get back to NY. I'm on it! It will take me about a year. But stay with us. Problem solving is a big part of our job," he tweeted. This is definitely a positive proclamation! What do you make of it — would you wear more Marc Jacobs if it came in plus sizes?

I like this picture even though she is showing rolls. I even happier to know that Marc Jacobs is adding size 18 to his line. I think more designers should start promoting more healthy weight plus size women.

I think it's nice to see advertising with plus size women, because we've seen so many with really skinny women in the past and still to this day. But, could we please please sometimes see some ad pictures of women who are a size 6 to 10? I would just like to see a wider range of sizes and body types in clothing advertising because all women are different and it would help us connect more with the styles of clothing and see how they would actually look like on our bodies. How many times I saw clothes in magazines and went to the store to realize how different they looked on me, or just in reality. Photoshop is so overly used nowadays that they don't even actually do the effort anymore of making things look real.

The model in the picture is a beautiful woman, no doubt, but that is such an unflattering pose! Also, really unflattering swim suit.

I'm gonna be honest, I don't find that picture remotely attractive. It certainly doesn't make me wanna buy what she's wearing. I think it's important to do things that are flattering to bigger people, not just "stretch" the ordinary clothes and put them for sale. That swimsuit, for example, is totally wrong for someone of her size.

I agree with the 2nd Anonymous comment. I don't understand why people are acting like MJ is promoting plus sizes just because they will now be providing them--what they plus size people supposed to do? Wear rags and mumus? And there's no call for rude comments either, like saying a picture of a plus size woman is "disgusting."

Oh wow, that picture is disgusting. I understand overweight women need clothing too, but that doesn't mean we need to see their fat rolls.

I agree with the girls that said they need to find a happy medium. sizes zero and 16 are not healthy or attractive.

Yes, its a good idea to get away from the skinny rails they call beauty.

I don't find those rolls attractive whatsoever, just like I don't find Rachel Zoe's boney chest attractive. I just don't understand fashion right now. Like KateLynn said, they need to find a happy medium. Also, I can't even believe the statement the CEO made: "I'm a big guy 6'4" 210 lbs." He's a tall guy, but standing at that height, but let's get real, being 210 is rather normal for a man. However, I do applaud the MJ brand expanding their line to larger women. I think plus-sized women should be able to wear designer labels as well.

this is cool, as far as health is concerned, it's up to each individual to figure out which figure is best for them and to maintain that. but it's cool that marc jacobs is giving more options (though a 16 is already plus sized).

This is great news. Finally some designers understand that larger women want and deserve to look attractive too.

I have mixed feelings about this. On one hand it would be nice if bigger/ thicker women had more stylish options when choosing clothing. But, on the other hand, I don't think anyone should be promoting being large as healthy. Most people are not naturally big boned/ thick. Most people aren't model sized either. Media/ Fashion should find a happy medium...
